  • Looking into the Sun’s Future
    NASA's Kepler mission have provided such a clear view of changes in star brightness that astronomers can now see clues about what happens inside red giant stars. The results also shed light on what could happen to the Sun in about 5 billion years.

  • Measuring the Sun’s Role on Climate
    Scientists have made a major step forward in accurately determining the amount of energy that the Sun provides to Earth. Much of Earth's biosphere depends on the Sun's life-giving energy. Studying the links between the Sun and life on Earth is essential in understanding life's

  • Living in a Dying Solar System, Part 2: Delaying Doomsday
    Roughly 5 billion years from now, the Sun will begin to swell as a red giant. But life on Earth will feel the effects of an aging Sun long before then. What can we do to survive?
